We were invited, to a local roping competition, just outside a small village called “Fishtail”, which sits below the Beartooth Mountains near Red Lodge.
The day was hot and really quite dusty at the arena. But with a few cold ones, and some comfy chairs, time passed with adequate pleasure. I even got to throw a few loops on the cow dummy!
Sheena, my travelling companion, enjoyed the whole thing immensely.
Now is`nt that cute? He looked so young, and yet so capable of roping a steer!
From here we drove back towards Red Lodge, and then onto a small community at Bear Creek. Remembered locally for a very serious mining accident back in 1949. However, the order of the day was Pig racing!
I know, where else but in America?
First one out of the traps! Then….
Really funny, but for a good cause, the money raised goes to help send local kids to College.
Needless to say i splashed a few dollars on Pig number 5, and needless to say, I lost! It was a fun day, and memorable too.
